About Jim Nelson

My name is Jim Nelson and I’m from Albuquerque, NM. I’m a helicopter pilot in the Army getting ready to retire from the Military after 30 years. The Casita has been a dream project of mine for many years. Staying in the Casita reminds me what life is really about. The people of La Paz don’t seem to let time rule them, their stress levels are way down or almost nonexistent. If you really want to unwind, and enjoy privacy, then the Casita is for you.

Jim Nelson purchased this house in 2004

Why Jim Nelson chose Baja California Sur

I bought the lot and built the Casita in the La Paz area because I had such a great time visiting La Paz. The board walk in La Paz is by far the most beautiful I’ve seen to include anywhere in the Caribbean. I always feel a sense of adventure when I’m in La Paz and doing things in Baja. Baja has given my family and friends memories they’ll never forget. I’ve been traveling around the world over for 30 years, and I still love feeling of true peace and tranquility, when I’m staying at the Casita.

What makes this house unique

I love watching the sunrise over the water with the City of La Paz in the back ground, it's a great way to start a day. I also love to lay out at night next to the gas fire pit and star gaze... The new spa at night is also great.

The Casita sits on 1.5 acres with over a 300 plants and trees. There are always birds to watch on the beach and humming birds around the casita. The Casita is so private that I’m not concerned about what I’m wearing, no one will know or care. Its great being able to walk, to one of the restaurants in the area and not have to drive all the time. The Casita is very laid back, peaceful and has a feeling of no worries. Living in the moment.

Perfect. The photos on the site do not come close at all to the real beauty of the place.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect. The photos on the site do not come close at all to the real beauty of the place. Everyday I found something new to make my time better than the day before. It was fun, exciting, safe and relaxing all in one. 32 days just flew by too quickly.

The house, grounds and pool coalesced into a harmonious mix of thrill and peace. I enjoyed the privacy as well as the availability of city entertainment a short distance away. Day trips to Cabo San Lucas and Todo Santos were easy and safe. There were 3 restaurants within easy walking distance, 2 of them literally next door and one a block away. The groundskeeper was respectful of privacy but managed to keep the grounds and pool impeccable. I hope to return within the next year. Very excited to see the finished "big house".

Outstanding property and owner

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just got back from one of our best vacation trips ever. Jim does a great job of making you informed of all aspects of arriving,living and sightseeing on your vacation. The property is beautiful and has everything you need to enjoy the perfect weather of LaPaz. Jim stays in constant communication and his property manager is within earshot of help if needed (which we did not need). The lap pool and the deck is really all you need to have a perfect vacation. When we got home I told Jim to get ready for us next year as we plan on spending a month or more with him. Again Jim and his Casita is truly a outstanding vacation destination for anyone interested in a great home and perfect weather.

Fabulous experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a magical place. Each and every day we woke up feeling relaxed and so blessed to be at the casita. Everything is exactly as the reviews and overview sum up. As we drove in Jim personally helped navigate over the phone as our sense of direction was a bit off. Once we got our bearings and drove around we realized how easy it is to get around the area. He bent over backwards to ensure we had a safe, lovely time and the casita couldn't be any cozier. Everything we needed right there. Spending days lounging in the pool or heading out on an excursion to swim with the sea lions or walk the Melacon were some of the most enjoyable moments I've had on vacation. If you are looking for something authentic and lovely come to La Paz. The property manager Jorge is world class. He knows the area very well and answers any questions. Many restaurants close to the casita are with in walking distance and delicious. Great prices and lovely people. My entire family wants to visit La Paz after hearing how wonderful it is. We will be back!! Thanks so much Jim.
